Pharrell, 2 Chainz, and Lil Jon Join Andy Samberg on ‘SNL’

After making his “Saturday Night Live” musical guest debut earlier this year, Pharrell returned to SNL last night for a surprise guest appearance. With Andy Samberg hosting the season finale, it was only right he debut a music video for The Lonely Island’s track “Hugs,” featuring Pharrell, off their 2013 release The Wack Album. Pharrell continues to show love to the ladies, giving out hugs like it’s nothin’!

Last night’s SNL included several other music related skits, including “When Will The Bass Drop,” which finds Samberg poking fun at EDM DJs with a little help from Lil Jon. Samberg was also joined by 2 Chainz, who made an appearance in a sketch titled “Superhits Studio.” 2 Chainz is having a bit of writers block in the studio, when he recruits “The Blizzard Man” to help him out.

Check out the music video for “Hugs” in the player above and the rest of the sketches below.
